It was a winning weekend in BC, after local residents enjoyed two consecutive lottery wins – and one before that.

A lotto ticket that was purchased in Chiiliwack for Saturday’s $7 million 6/49 jackpot matched all six numbers from across Canada to win the big money.

Adding to the excitement, the $500,000 Extra on the same draw was won by a ticket purchased in the Peace River-South region.

The lucky wins follows hot on the heels of another lottery prize over the weekend when a Lotto Max ticket bought in Burnaby won Friday’s $25.9 million jackpot.

All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize, so check your tickets in case you’re a few milli0n bucks richer this morning.
